* Is there any target acquisition mode available ?
ACQ (acquisition) is the mode used to acquire a target for
coronographic observations (the target is placed under the

only for the HRC. Observations through two (non-polarizer) filters
are allowed in ACQ images to cut down the flux to acceptable levels.
